Shot up to this show from CT and had a great pre-show dinner next door at a little seafood shanty that backed up to the venue, where we sat and listened/watched some of Levon's opening set before heading in. Fun show from start to finish but most memorable point was at the beginning of Phil's set - I had gone up to grab a couple of beers and was heading down the left ramp towards the front section when they started up Bertha - and then it hit me! The Celts had just won the NBA championship and this was Phil's nod to that accomplishment - I literally got to my aisle set when Jackie G sang "Dressed myself in Green" and I raised both beers above my head laughing and nodding to the band-- not sure that many folks around me got the connection but I sure enjoyed it and Phil was all smiles. Great venue except for the constant drone of jets coming in and out of Logan - although it actually worked somewhat with the Unbroken Chain that night!

Felt like the energizer bunny all night long.
WOW!!!! Great show! Great recording!! The second set was just out of this world. Been listening to this recording for 3 days now and somehow I got to get myself back to my other music but I just can't seem to switch this stuff off! Nice job with the recording, thanks!
I like the sound of this version the most of the three posted. Ive listened to this show over and over again since attending. It gives me goosebumps. I will cherish this music for the rest of my life.

Another Phantastic Phil Show
Wow, another great show. This set was the perfect combination of some strong jams and straight rock music. Jackie Greene blew my mind once again. I can't wait to see where this kid goes from here. The chemistry that the band had during Help>slipknot>Tower, was just incredible. Teresa Williams was literally jumping up and down on stage at the start of Tower. Phil once again blew my mind. Great great show!

My boy in the 508 tells me this was one for the books..The Cohassett Kid wasn't lying.
After 24 years of listeninmg to Phil play bass, I could swear he's better now than he ever was. Thank you for that
